  1. Moses...Do you recommend anything but OEM oil filters for the Honda xr650r and what do you think about reusing steel oil filters?
  2. Moses, A friend of mine bought a 2006 650L a couple months ago, I went with him to inspect it and pick it up. It's been problem free up until recent. About a week ago he told me the chain slider somehow came off the top of the swingarm and was flapping off the bottom. No big deal, bought a new one and I watched him install it correctly. 5 miles down the road and the top came off and went through the front sprocket. I looked at everything, mounting hardware was still intact, chain is a touch loose, but nothing glaring. Any experiences losing a slider, let alone two in as many rides? I can't say that I have. So we turn around to head back to my house and the bike makes it a couple miles before dying. I get it started, figured maybe it was operator error as my buddy is new to bikes and such. Then it died again another mile down the road. It would start momentarily with the choke on, I ended up running home to get my truck, the bike was done. I had him order a carb kit, I'll start there with a rebuild and replace the plug as it looks overdue. I think this should solve the non-op issue. At the end of the day I would say the slider coming off saved our butts, because otherwise we would have been way up the North Cascade Highway with a bike that didn't want to run.
  3. I finally picked up a Timbersled Mountain Horse snow bike kit for my Honda just last month. I starting prepping my bike for install but decided to check my valves since it had been a couple races since last checking them. The intakes were both out of spec. Time for new valves and seats. I bought the bike new in '05 and hadn't had to do any engine work to date so it's impressive that the oem Ti valves lasted this long. Millennium Technologies in WI did the head rebuild. I opted to stick with Ti valves over SS due to weight. MT replaced the seats with a copper beryllium seat that will extend the life of the Ti intake valves. The cylinder was stripped and had a new Nikasil coating applied followed by their diamond hone. I had read about L.A. Sleeve in the past but it totally slipped my mind when it came time for the rebuild. Next time! A racing buddy insisted I only use a Wossner piston kit, it's a really nice piston. I just finished assembling the engine 2 nights ago and finished installing the MH kit and a new TT hour/tach and a Koso temp gauge last night. I ran two 5 minute heat cycles and had no surprise leaks or sounds. Two twists of the throttle and she fired on the first kick.(I did slowly kick through about 4 or 5 times to get oil circulated around before the initial start-up) I replaced all of the carb vent lines with shorter lines after rebuilding the carb. I ziptied them all together and then ziptied close-celled foam over them to keep snow/ice from obstructing them. I have a one-way filter on the end of the lower engine vent tube for the same reason. The kit comes with an Outerwear pre-filter but I did not install it, rather I blocked all of the intake box openings with more closed-cell foam. Due to it now being spring just about and the days of deep powder riding numbered, I did not make engine shields to keep the engine warm(hopefully the t-stat will keep operating temps up) or install any sort of carb heater.
